Cheery Floral

Hi Everyone.  This is the card for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 78

Decided to go with a light cheery colour and again left where there should be a sentiment blank. 
The colour ended up with is a close alternate to my much depleted GKD stock by using the Coastal Cabana from SU over an Ivory stock.

Then took an ivory piece, stamped it with a stamp from See D's deco background set, (a find on sale one day when at a store closing.) and Gina K Turquoise Sea Ink.   Took a while to think about it, as had never seen them, they are thin enough that two layers of them and paper fit into a slim CD case, and about 1 1/2" size and a few long and skinny, but with 16 in it, thought it well worth the try.   Glad that they were purchased as work beautifully.

This was adhered to the front panel of Coastal Cabana, an ivory ribbon from Elan around both and tied into a bow. 

Next took a wee piece of each stock, layered, popped with the dimensionals which are so thin. and placed on the bottom right.  Now, what to put on it.  So looked about for things and decided on the wee flower punch again, and took, sponged the edges with the ink, added the Bitty Bling from Close To My Heart, swirled on the layer, and done.  !!

Just when making found out a friend is hospitalized, so know which sentiment is going on this in again the Turquoise Sea for a tone on tone look, and popping in the mail.  

Here is the original sketch for you
